Request Rcipe For Custom List of URLs

Hi, Everyone!

I know the convention says it's not polite to ask for code but my knoledge of this matters is near zero. So I'm sorry to ask for a little snippet. I have been searching the site and Google to find something that works but I dont get it.

What I need is very simple. A simple recipe where I can put a list of URLs and make an epub with them.

Example:

http://www.url1.com
http://www.url2.com
http://www.url3.com
http://www.url4.com
http://www.url5.com
http://www.url6.com

You may start to find a recipe in calibre, and try to understand function "parse_index" function(actually it is simple) in it, then you can easily figure out how to implement your requirements.

I can’t find a recipe implementing "parse_index". Could you point me to one?

That's the explanation, for what it's worth to you. I still don't get it myself.

This functionality is literally built into Calibre. Just click on create recipe and add each URL as a feed, assuming they are rss feeds

This is one of those things that sound simple but really, really aren't. Different websites are built in completely different ways. This forum, for example, uses PHP to build the page when your browser asks for it. Other sites are HTML already, and just need to transmit the HTML file to the browser directly. A row of houses may look almost identical from outside, but the rooms could be in completely different arrangements inside.

To make an EPUB from websites, the program must be told how each page is built in order to know where to find the necessary information. Just like you would need to know where the doors and hallways are to navigate a house, the program needs to know what data is where and how to ask for it.

If you have RSS feeds, the feed organizes the data in uniform patterns that Calibre already knows how to find, so that function is, as duluoz mentioned, already in Calibre. If it's not in a feed and not already listed as having an adapter, then it needs to be broken down into useful information for Calibre to know how to format the data.

With no more information than you've given, all anyone can suggest is to visit those respective websites, save page as HTML, import into Calibre, and then combine into EPUB.
